wrong timezone issue in iOS11

Image
Many iPhone users after upgrading to iOS 11 are facing issue that iPhone is showing wrong timezone. The issue is while iPhone Time Zone set to "Set Automatically" to OFF , iPhone will revert to home country time after a restart or switching back from AirplanMode. The time zone reverts in iPhone is faced only after upgrading to iOS11. This sometimes causes to miss an alarm, reminder or important meeting. 


The issue is even affects latest iPhone 8 + and iPhone X. iPhone X on iOS 11.2.5 seems to switch ‘auto time zone’ setting back on a few hours after a restart. The issue is very annoying as once you restart your phone it will reset itself to whatever time it wants.  The issue is more prominent if you have bought a phone from one country and using it in some other country. Many users tried set the date time "set automatically" to be off (settings>privacy>location services>system services) but even this does not seems to fix the issue as after sometimes it will…

Image
Many iPhone users after upgrading to iOS 11 are facing an issue in iMessage, call logs and Message apps that when they got a call from a number that is not saved in contact list but in the call log, under the number, a name is suggested: "Maybe: X". The issue is seem all the time as users get a "Maybe:" in front of most iMessage contacts and only the phone number for SMS.
This is not a bug or issue but an intended behaviour added by Apple as iOS scans your email for contact info.

If it finds the phone number linked with a contact from your email, it will show you "Maybe:" with its guess of the person's name.


In case you find this annoying and want to stop Maybe: in suggested contracts on iPhone please check below possible solution :

Many iPhone 6s/7 users including iPhone 8 and iPhone X users are facing issue with iPhone mail app that their configured Yahoo email is not working properly. Yahoo mail in mail app are not updating in iOS 11. It seems that mail is not getting fetched properly from Yahoo server. But if you go to desktop version there is new email while iPhone not shows up latest emails. Even when tried setting up my yahoo accounts in outlook app and it works flawlessly so this is clearly a mail app issue.

iPhone Unable to share and edit recently take photos

Image
Many iPhone 6/7 plus users are unable to edit or share photos taken few seconds ago. The issue is majorly reported in iOS 11 or after user upgrade to iOS 11. This happens strange behaviour in the Camera and Photos app that photos taken recently cannot be edited or shared. The recently taken photo that can be edited then just minutes later takes another that can’t be edited. The issue is even reported with iPhone X and iPhone 8 on in iOS 11.2.5.


However when tried to share photos by going into the Messages app and attaching them it works fine but just not from the Camera or Photos app. This is annoying that photos can not be edited straight away. While some user complains that the issue is not with every photo taken but is intermittent like take a photo, can edit. Take another, can’t edit. Take another.. but not a fixed pattern. Surely this is an intermittent problem, that appears to occur randomly.
